franklinFood and water shortages will be among the biggest issues in the years to come as a baby born somewhere in the world today will bring the global population to 7 billion. According to an article in Reuters, climate change could be the greatest impediment to meeting food targets for the bulging population as rising temperatures and droughts dry out farmlands, which are then inundated by intense floods and storms.

The way climate change has been handled offers a window on how tricky it is to tackle global, long-term problems, however. While it's clear what needs to be done, UN climate talks have largely stalled.

Wendel Trio, Director of Climate Action Network Europe, told Reuters,"If you compare it to the urgency and the fact that many governments clearly understand the urgency, it is a failure of governments that they can't move forward."
